HG Gundam AGE-3 Fortress English Manual & Color Guide

HG Gundam AGE-3 Fortress Construction Manual & Color Guide
Released last month by Bandai was the 1/144 High Grade variant of the Gundam AGE-3 Fortress from the Gundam AGE anime series. Can't help but think that it sure looks a lot like Seravee Gundam from Gundam 00, sans the bulky torso armor of course.

The HG Gundam AGE-3 Fortress is selling for $ at Amazon, 1440 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1620 yen at Hobby Search
